Iced Cucumber Soup


1 tsp.. Unsalted butter
3 cucumber Cucumber (peeled, seeded and chopped)
2 cups No salt added vegetable stock
1/2 cup White wine
1 Tbsp. Fresh dill
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/8 tsp., ground Black pepper
3/4 cup Fat free sour cream
1/2 cup Nonfat Greek Yogurt


Melt the butter in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the cucumber and sauté about ten minutes. The cucumber should be lightly browned.

Add the chicken broth and increase heat to medium-high. Bring the soup to a boil, stirring occasionally, and add the white wine.

Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for about ten minutes stirring frequently. Add dill, salt and pepper.

Reduce heat to medium low and simmer two minutes.

Blend until smooth using a stick blender. (Or place 1/2 of the soup in a blender jar and blend on liquefy until smooth. Remove to a storage container. Repeat with the other half of the soup and allow it to cool.)

After the soup is cooled add 1/2 cup of the sour cream and the yogurt to the soup. Whisk until smooth and then cover and chill until very cold.

To serve, ladle into individual bowls, top each with a dollop of the remaining sour cream. Garnish with cucumber slices and fresh dill.

Recipe Notes

With iced soups, just a touch of sour cream or yogurt will enhance the soup and complement the flavors of the base of the soup.

"First prepare the soup of your choice and pour it into a bowl. Then, take the bowl and quickly turn it upside down on the cookie tray. Lift the bowl and quickly turn it upside down on the cookie tray. Lift the bowl ever so gently so that the soup retains the shape of the bowl. Gently is the key word here. Then, with the knife cut the soup down the middle into halves, then quarters, and gently reassemble the soup into a cube. Some of the soup will run off onto the cookie tray. Lift this soup up by the corners and flood slowly into a cylindrical soup staff. Place the packet in your purse or inside coat pocket, and pack off to work."
